KTUH Alumni Reunion Event A Success!
The first KTUH staff alumni reunion was held the afternoon of Saturday, July 16th, 2011 on the Hemenway Hall makai lanai at the UH Manoa campus. Seventy alumni, guests and current KTUH staff attended and enjoyed an afternoon of food, drinks, music, KTUH studio tours, plus a showing of the KTUH 40th Documentary and Gallery Show. There was plenty of time to talk story. The KTUH 40 Gallery Show was printed on banners for display at the Reunion. There was also a music set contest for attendees: alumni put together 20 to 30 minute music sets from the era that they were at KTUH and the selected sets were played during the Reunion event. Photos of the reunion event may be seen on the KTUH Alumni flickr site and on Honolulu Pulse.
“This was a fun event! Seeing and catching up with people that I had not seen in over 35 years was really a blast. A BIG mahalo to Chris Kirk-Kuwaye, KTUH’s advisor, for all of her hard work on the on-site planning, and to her husband, Mike and my wife, Cheryl, for manning the check-in / merchandise table. Mahalo also to Ramases and the KTUH staff for providing the music editing and support to make this event possible.” – Fred Barbaria
